SILRES® WH

The silicone resin emulsion in the SILRES® WH line provides wood with long-lasting protection against moisture and damp, as evidenced by the beading effect on impregnated wood (right). In contrast, the untreated wood (left) becomes damp immediately. By providing long-term protection, SILRES® WH greatly reduces the frequency of renovating and recoating exterior woodwork.
